he cites advancing age and deteriorating health. while the move is not unprecedented, it is not common. the last pope to resign was pope gregory 12 in 1415. pope benedict xvi has served less than eight years but is 85 years old. vatican spokesman says the announcement was a surprise. the pope will continue to carry out his duties until february 28th and then the cardinals will select a replacement but that won't be immediate. the spokesman's best guess is we'll have a new pope by easter which this year, falls on march 31st. president obama is awarding the medal of honor today to army sergeant clinton roam shea for his courageous actions during a combat operation in afghanistan in october of 2009. romechet is the fourth living person to receive the medal. the president will travel to asheville, north carolina then

my weekend as you know consists of a box of wine and eric boehlert tweets. this weekend however, every one of your tweets was spectacular i must say. nra wants armed cops in 98,000 schools. has the nra commented on the l.a. cop terrorizing cops? >> it is the whole good guys, bad guys. it is such an embarrassingly unsophisticated way to go about gun control. if you have a gun and we like you, you're a good guy but -- >> stephanie: it is a story about a good guy with a gun can become a bad guy with a gun. >> if you just look at the depressing laundry list of shooting victims every day you know america gun violence is basically american shooting relatives and boyfriends and girlfriends. that is a huge chunk of gun violence. and so how are you supposed to
7:11 am
determine the good guys and bad guys? they're all good guys before they start shooting people, basically. >> stephanie:s as you allude to, until somebody gets drunk or angry. at any rate, you write it is odd how right wing views bush in a good way but defines obama in a bad way through the benghazi terror attacks. incredible. >> also tweeted this morning said something like call me crazy but i think the g.o.p. is laying the ground work for benghazi to be the centerpiece of the 2016 campaign. >> stephanie: i heard someone in the drone discussion saying obama kept us safe and bush kept us safe except for that one time. >> it is amazing. the benghazi story won't go away. it has taken on such a larger than life -- it encompasses everything the right wing feels about obama and he's not like us. he doesn't protect us. it is about the sad scary
7:12 am
incident of four americans who are killed in a terrorist attack. and it is just funny. i happened to be doing some research. i was going back and looking at some of the -- you know, coverage a decade ago from 9-11 and iraq war. and time and again you know, 9-11 was pointed to as bush's crowning achievement. this was something to be incredibly proud of. he stepped up. this was leadership. so allowing 3,000 americans to be killed by -- is leadership. being associated with four americans in benghazi is an incredible failure on obama's part. it is just amazing. >> stephanie: the other great point you make is another benghazi hearing was it as informative as the one following the nine u.s. embassies consulate attacks hash tag never mind. there's just no context. nine u.s. embassies in consulate attacked during bush.
7:13 am
if you want to go back further into context in an 18-month period when reagan was president, three separate u.s. embassies or barracks were attacked in beirut. over 300 americans were killed. not just the marines but others. >> stephanie: right. >> 18 months. after the third one reagan campaigned in iowa the next day. reporters asked him did you think about not campaigning today. he said no. we need to campaign today. so you know, the double standard throughout history is so glaring and there were no hearings, of course, during the bush years when embassies and consulates were attacked. >> most upset about benghazi are the people who voted for -- for embassy security. >> and -- the republican party -- everyone forgets about this now. that try to block the 9-11 commission investigation. dick cheney was on the phone with daschle, with democrats saying this investigation is not
7:14 am
going to happen. >> yep. >> and now you know, we need 19 hearings. >> stephanie: by the way, so rubio obviously will give the response to the state of the union. in the last four years rubio's been for immigration reform as florida house speaker. against it as florida candidate and for it now with florida senator hash tag courage. they have their next flip-flopper to run for president. >> he's on the cover of "time" magazine. the republican savior. i think there's one or two sentences, even passing references in that very soft time cover story about how rubio has evolved on immigration. look, when he was -- when he was a republican speaker of the house in florida, he was very frankly liberal when it came to immigrations, not interested in these right wing talk about crackdowns. he ran for senate. everything changed. he ran so far to the right of christie and now he decides well republicans can't win
7:15 am
national election. he runs back to his previous position. that's sort of the definition of classic flip-flop. traditionally. is something to be -- held up as ridiculed. no, no no. he's the republican savior. he's smart. he's savvy. >> stephanie: eric, before we dive into right-wing world speaking of disarray. as the g.o.p. splits, whose side is fox news on. is it is interesting. as a tv home base for rove in one of the earliest supporters of the tea party's crusade fox news has one foot planted in each of the warring camps and finds itself having to navigate the name-calling. they did part ways with sarah palin and dick morris but they signed up a tea party guy. where are they in this interparty battle? >> he was having -- eric was having these war of words are karl rove and the tea party said karl rove is an elitist and he's out of touch. where are they? they're right in the middle.
7:16 am
my main point is this is not what fox does. fox news is not designed to air out public hearings about what is the true meaning of conservativism. it is not, you know, this sort of open forum where everyone gets their point of view. fox news is designed to, as a heat seeking missle to smear democrats. that's how they get their good ratings, short term programming. that's their sort of dna. i don't think fox is going to be doing a very good job in navigating a civil war because that's not what their viewers are interested in. but there's already rumblings on the right. the tea party with fox's close association with karl rove and how they allow this -- you know, this symbol of the republican elite to always be on fox and trash the tea party. so they -- you know, they are caught in the middle. >> stephanie: right. >> i don't think navigating it is going to do them any good. >> stephanie: it is like a
7:17 am
right wing wacko kind of monster truck -- i don't know. xxx games. let's dive in. >> xxx games? x games. >> that's different. >> stephanie: that's entirely different. okay. it is right wing porn. >> look how awesome it is in color. >> i think karl needs to go through a metamorphosis. this idea that somehow a handful of republicans are going to attack republicans that the handful doesn't like i find that repulsive. i find it absolutely repulsive. this is not how you build a strong republican party. it is by going after the people in your party who are different than you are. this is frat ra side. if they want to render itself utterly irrelevant, the best way to do it is to become several little parties within the party. >> stephanie: that just illustrated your whole piece didn't it? >> it is funny. now karl rove is starting to understand what it is like to be the target of this right wing
7:18 am
noise machine. there was some posts online. karl rove is lying. he never worked for the reagan campaign. and you know, now huckabee is do offing the name-calling. mark levine was doing the name-calling. there is no rational discussion. if you're karl rove and you oppose these people, i think he's done it in a fairly high-minded way you know, he hasn't done the name-calling. they just come back with attacks. he's ruined -- not only is he ruining the party but you know, he's an elite. he's lying about his record. et cetera, et cetera. so it is always nice to -- when folks on the right actually goat appreciate and experience what it's like to be the target of these right wing -- >> stephanie: welcome to our world. >> four years for karl rove. >> stephanie: all right bill crystal on fox news sunday. >> democrats. >> this is not a matter of politics. this is going to gut our defenses. if you are responsible president, you don't have to save $45 billion this year.
7:19 am
that's 4% of the deficit. we're going to endanger our national defenses and shortchange our servicemen and women overseas for the sake of cutting 4% from this year's deficit? it is totally irresponsible. >> stephanie: wow. deficits don't matter again. >> that's a good point. deficits are this -- you know, this sort of murderous ominous thing that is hanging over the generations and obama doesn't care about the future generations. there are actual cuts. but look, crystal he uses this card all the time. he wrote a column last week saying if democrats don't vote against chuck hagel they're endangering our troops. we want to have some -- cutting that republicans claim we have to do, they're endangering our troops. >> stephanie: all right. hang on, eric remains in the side sidecar. we continue more right-wing world. it is "the stephanie miller show." >> announcer: there's a tea
